“If you remain silent at this time relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place…
And who knows but that you have come to a royal position for such a time as this?” (4:14)
Esther. The Shot Caller.
This is not replacement theology. The scripture is a divine design woven into the lives of those who are called by his name and who have accepted the salvation that is Yahusha Ha’mashiach (The Messiah)
One of the verses I love is “I am the first and the last, and apart from me there is no God”. (Isaiah 44:6) Our very existence is hinged on the word of Yahuah, that’s everything from Genesis to Revelation. The creator spoke the very world we live in, into existence- so knowing the calling and season of your life can truly allow you to prepare in ways that will exceed everyone’s expectations, especially your own.
The book of Esther reveals what the role of the bride the of Messiah will be. Esther is given provision, authority, and unmatched grace to fully carry out the will of Yah. She takes the place of the unrepentant woman (Vashti) and is made Queen despite her background of being an orphan she is crowned with nobility. Quite literally, we are shown how this woman becomes one with the word of Yahuah, similar to how Yahushua said we should all become.
Esther’s timeline shows the virtues of being hidden and reserved, leaning on Yah’s wisdom rather than our own understanding, and the satisfying vindication of the meek (those who will inherit the earth).
From orphan to exalted.
Hadassah was always the woman for the job.
The origins of her Hebrew name mean “myrtle tree” which is seen in the book of Nehemiah. The branches from the olive tree (representing the Israelites) the wild olive tree (gentiles grafted into Yahusha’s sheepfold) the myrtle tree (The Bride of Mashiach/ Called out assemblies) and the palm leaves (signifying triumphal victory over spiritual oppression, see john 12:13) are all used to construct the booths that the Israelites were instructed to build to celebrate the feasts of booths (feast of tabernacles). (Nehemiah 8:15) which points to the rest she brought to her generation by following the word of the holy spirit that was brought to her by her cousin Mordecai.
We also see in the book of Zechariah (1:8) the vision of the man standing among the myrtle trees closely resembles the book of revelation where the man is standing among the seven lampstands.
Though Hadassah was adorned with great beauty, she was typed as an outcast and rejected. Her orphan background lets us know that she was familiar with suffering. This also ties into her purpose. In the letter from Timothy, we are told that if we suffer with Christ, we will reign with him also. (2 Timothy 2:12). Hadassah was purposed to help deliver her people by becoming a leader to them.
Hidden and on Reserve.
The King would only call the Queen into his presence when he wanted to spend time with her, otherwise, if she approached him without being summoned, she would be put to death (Esther 4:11)
And before she was even able to have this ability Queen Esther was consecrated. Completing 12 months of specifically prescribed beauty treatments, and 6 months of oils, perfumes, and cosmetic regimens.
Esther was set up to replace Queen Vashti, a woman who was painted as scorned and holding contempt for the King. While Esther was among many other beautiful women who were called to the kingdom (Esther 2:3) she was not anxious for the spotlight, but under the provisions made for her, she remained hidden, practiced listening, and learned the ways of the palace and kingdom. She knew what would be expected of her by gleaning from wisdom.
There is always an appointed time.
“If I Perish, I perish.” She said. But the spirit of Yah was with her.
“For the Holy Spirit will teach you at that time what you should say.” (Luke 12:12)
